Bedliners

Just got my new truck and I am looking at different bedliners. I currently have a 27DSRL TT but will probably upgrade to a 5th wheel later. I am looking for some feedback as to how difficult it is to remove the 5th wheel hitch if I want to haul cargo in the truck. Also is it feasible to install a bed mat/liner and trim it around the rails or whatever part of the hitch that is permanently installed in the bed of the truck? Anyone install a Dual Liner brand of bedliner in their truck?

Found a previous thread identical to this one. Spray-in seems to be the overwhelming choice.

IMO spray in liners are the only way to go. The quality of the liner has more to do with the prep than product so find a shop that does a lot and has a lot of happy customers.

In my area the auto body shops seem to do a better job than the Rhino and Line-X franchise guys who only do liners as fast as possible.

Also this the type of thing that is often cheaper when paid in cash. Very little material cost compared to labor, so mine was done off the books for ~25% less than retail since I paid in cash.

I got a F250 late last year with the factory installed pucks in the bed for the 5th wheel. Had a Line-X liner put in. The company here does a great job of putting them in.
As far as the 5th wheel, I bought the Reese adapter that fit in the pucks, then bought the Reese Elite 16k hitch. A two piece install/removal. It's lighter for me to put in two pieces rather than one heavy piece. This was quite a bit less money than going with a hitch that fit directly into the pucks.

I'll echo the opinions here. I had a Line-X sprayed in before the truck was a month old. I also have the Ford under-bed mounting for the hitch. No problems at all with my B&W OEM hitch. I expect none of the under-bed mounting systems would have an issue with a spray in liner.
BTW: What "club" says about where it's installed is spot on. My son had the dealer spray in a liner on his truck and he's taken it back twice for touch-ups. I had to drive 40mi 1 way to reach a Line-X dealer but I think the results were worth the trip.

I had Line-X sprayed before the 5th wheel brackets were installed. I've never taken the brackets out of my truck bed, but there have been several times I wish they weren't there.

There are a few manufacturers that have hitches that require just a hole in the middle of the bed. I don't know the price for those. But if you plan on hauling things in the bed and want the bed flat, I'd seriously consider one of those types.

A criticism I've heard about plastic drop-in bed liners is that the vibration will wear through the paint layers. You'll never know how bad it is until you take out the bed liner or it rusts through. With the plastic in there it won't dry quickly and if you are unlucky enough to drive on salted winter roads, the salt residue could be trapped for a long time.

=============
You are absolutely correct about that statement above. Bought a used 95 Silverado that had a plastic bed liner in it. Got tired of the crap sliding around on the hard plastic so I took it out. Underneath, there were several places worn through to the metal bed, and a lot of places where it was worn down to the primer. Touched it up and put in a rubber mat I got at Tractor Supply. It worked well.

Oh YA. Big time! I forgot about that part.

We leased a Ford Ranger pickup with a plastic liner. Man would stuff travel from side to side and front to back! It was like a skating rink back there!

When I got my truck (Lease back) I pulled out the drop in bedliner.. you would not believe the cr*p that was under it. I pulled out 20 lbs of gravel. Bought a kit and sprayed in a bedliner myself.. been very happy with it..
